Biophilia 2020 International Poster Competition, organised by Brand Culture Company and PosterTerritory, now is calling for entries, open to anyone interested in sharing their point of view on biophilia.
Biophilia is an idea that humans have an innate connection to nature. This connection helps our physical and mental wellbeing. Good biophilic design synthesizes the complexities of modern structures and spaces with design elements that support our health, represented through three broad categories:
❶ The direct experience of nature - this refers to first-person human contact with architectural and other environmental features and includes how we feel and see: Light, Air, Water, Fire, Plants, Animals, Weather, Natural landscapes and ecosystems
❷ The indirect experience of nature - this refers to avatars and representations of nature. including: Images of nature, Natural materials, Natural colors, Simulating natural light and air, Naturalistic shapes and forms, Evoking nature, Information richness, Age, change and the patina of time, Natural geometries, Biomimicry
❸ The experience of space and place - this refers to spatial features that evoke the natural environment’s systems and complexities including: Natural geometries such as fractals, Organized complexity, Integration of parts to wholes, Transitional spaces, Mobility and wayfinding, Cultural and ecological attachment to place
